Cotidianul (meaning The Daily in English) was a Romanian language newspaper published in Bucharest, Romania, between 1991 and 2009.

History and profile[edit]

Founded by Ion Raţiu, Cotidianul was first published on 10 May 1991[1] and was the first privately held newspaper in Romania following the Romanian Revolution of 1989.[2] The paper had its headquarters in Bucharest.[1] It was published Monday to Saturday in Berliner format.
